Post Of­fice em­ployee, 45, was re­leased Mon­day morn­ing from a Corn­wall hos­pi­tal after suf­fer­ing a mild at­tack of angina Thurs­day.

20 YEARS AGO Wed­nes­day, Jan. 22, 1997

The own­er­ship of one of Glen­garry’s land­marks is ex­pected to be trans­ferred from the RRCA to the Mart­in­town Mill Preser­va­tion So­ci­ety Cor­po­ra­tion. The RRCA has been with­out fund­ing to main­tain the mill for close to a year due to pro­vin­cial cut­backs.

More Char­lot­ten­burgh res­i­dents are rallying be­hind “South Glen­garry” for the name of the new en­tity to be cre­ated once their town­ship amal­ga­mates with Lan­caster town­ship and Lan­caster vil­lage.

The Vil­lage of Lan­caster will be re­spon­si­ble for its own wa­ter and sewage works fol­low­ing an­other round of changes an­nounced by the pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ment. The change is not ex­pected to af­fect rate pay­ers in Lan­caster at all.
